Description

A gripping story of four remarkable young men—photographers, friends and rivals—who band together for protection in the final, violent days of white rule in South Africa.




About the Author
Branko is the founder and editor of Daily Maverick. In his 30 years in publishing, he has been the editor of business, politics, technology and wildlife magazines. He has also published fiction and non-fiction books, most of them in Serbian. Although he has never pretended to be a reporter, his wide knowledge of politics (especially in America), combined with his experiences in a disintegrating Yugoslavia, gives him an unusual outlook on events in South Africa.

Silva is a freelance photographer. He was the South African Press Photographer of the Year for 1992.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, renowned South African activist and cleric, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1986, the Gandhi Peace Prize in 2005, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009, among other honors.
